  • 24-count mini muffin tin
  • 24 cupcake liners
  • teaspoon
  • stirring spoon
  • microwave-safe bowl
  • small tray
  • wax paper 


  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups premium chocolate morsels your choice of varieties
  • 2 tablespoons sprinkles


  • Prepare your muffin tin with mini white cupcake liners.
  • In a medium bowl, add the peanut butter, and powdered sugar. Mix to combine. The texture will be similar to edible play dough.
  • Using a teaspoon, measuring out teaspoon-sized balls of dough. Slightly flatten them to be 1/4″ thick discs about the circumference of a quarter. Line them on a wax paper-lined small tray and refrigerate them for 10 minutes to firm them up a bit.
  • In a microwave, add chocolate morsels to a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl. Set microwave to 50% power and microwave morsels (stirring in-between each) for 30 seconds. Repeat until chocolate is creamy.
  • Once chocolate is creamy, add one teaspoon to each cupcake liner. Then, place your peanut butter discs in the center of each spot. Firmly add on Cadbury Mini Egg to each space. Then, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of chocolate to each to cover the tops. Gently pat the cupcake tin down a few times to settle the chocolate.
  • Immediately add any sprinkles you choose before chocolate sets. Add peanut butter cups to the refrigerate to set the chocolate for at least 15 minutes.
